Speaking with One Voice

The Northeast Pool & Spa Association is your voice on legislation and regulations impacting our industry. NESPA GRAC monitors legislative action across the region and represents the pool and spa industry when these important actions are being debated.




NESPA's Government Relations Action Committee (GRAC) brings together dedicated member volunteers and lobbyists on behalf of our members to oppose onerous over-regulation and advocate for our industry. We have important relationships with Federal, State and local officials and are in regular contact to share our industry’s perspective on legislation. 

The Government Relations Action Committee consists of representatives from each of our four chapters.  If you have questions about legislation and government regulations contact NESPA at 609-689-9111.

Keep on the Cutting Edge of Technology

The pool and spa industry has always been a complex business, but today, keeping up with technological change and innovation can be positively challenging. That’s why it is important to continually check the notices from your local chapter and to click on the NESPA website to read the Upcoming Events area on the homepage for important upcoming programs that you can profit from.

A prime example is the Metro Chapter’s recent dinner meeting on measuring pools on August 13th. Wayne Fisher, Fisherlea Systems, West Montrose, Ontario, Canada, showed a phone app that he created for measuring pool liners and pool covers called Pool Measure Pro. The app is available for free download at the app store on your phone.
Many pool professionals who measure for replacement pool liners and covers use the traditional A-B triangulation method. Pool Measure Pro is set up to use the A-B method as well, but in addition it helps the user catch common issues and oversights. Most importantly, it has an intelligent warning system to help catch major blunders before you send off your measurements to the factory.
Many major manufacturers offering phone apps for measuring liners and covers have adopted and customized the Pool Measurement Pro app for their own use. Find more information at fisherlea.com.
